After working for Mikros on Asterix Mansion of the gods and Illumination's franchise ‘Despcable Me 2’, I've been animating and supervising at ODW ever since. Starting ODW's first franchise is an exciting challenge and I am keen to see new energetic arrivals coming and joining our effort.
Originally from Spain, I worked in commercials, rides and TV projects for various studios when I lived in the UK for 3 years. In 2011, I returned to Spain and worked in the Spanish feature ‘Justin and the Knights of Valour’ as a senior animator for Kandor Graphics, and after that joined DreamWorks Animation in 2013, starting as an animator and development assistant, to afterwards become a character lead of ‘Dave, the octopus’, the villain of the ‘Penguins of Madagascar’ movie.
